A heartbroken family are appealing for help to find a mobile phone containing the last cherished pictures of their son, who died of a brain tumour.

Keen Watton sportsman Jack Seear died in November last year aged 25.

His father Eric has lost his Sony mobile phone which contained precious memories of his son including the last messages he sent to his father.

Mr Seear lost the phone on Monday when getting into his car outside the family home in Lovell Gardens.

He said: 'There are photos right up to the time he died, personal messages my son had sent me.

'I am not really bothered about the phone itself it is what is on there, its the memories.'

Mr Seear thinks he lost the phone while leaving for work and believes it was found by a dustbin man who placed it on Jack's car.

A passer-by appears to have found it and tried to get in touch with the family but unfortunately Mr Seear was not able to understand the man and has not been able to get back in touch with him.

Mr Seear said: 'I hadn't realised I had lost it.

'I had a call from a man but I couldn't understand him, his English was not very good.

'I thought he wanted to buy Jack's Audi. It was only about three hours later I realised he had called from my phone.

'I tried to ring him back but it is switched off.'

Mr Seear is so desperate for the return of the phone that he has offered a £50 reward and has been leafleting the area.

Mr Seear said: 'Everyone has been asking if I have found it. A lot of people are interested, I think it is because of how well-loved Jack was.

'I have had some offers from people to help translate which is very kind of them.'

The Sony phone is in a black leather case which also contains business cards.

If anyone finds the phone or knows who has it they should contact the Seear family on 01953885468.
